Butter Almond Meltaways Recipe

Butter Almond Meltaways are light, delicate, melt in your mouth cookies. Good luck eating just one!

When you bake these cookies you will notice the color doesn’t really change. They do not turn golden to let you know they are done. They also do not change their shape much while baking, so you want to make nice round discs out of the dough when placing them on the baking sheet. Stick to the 6-7 minute baking time to achieve a nice tender cookie. Over bake them and they will be dry and crunchy. That is not what you want.

Serves 40


1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon butter extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 pinch salt
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon milk


Step 1
Preheat oven to 350
In a mixing bowl cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, almond and butter extracts, and salt, and mix well. Add baking soda, baking powder, and half of the flour and mix on low. Add remaining flour mixing until combined.
